So who forgot to check the storm warnings a boat owner should always checks before he leaves the dock?

To have take that boat out when Storm Warnings and high seas had been forecast and posted is as dumb as dumb can get.

It's too bad they didn't check the marine forecast. Going offshore in the ocean in a tiny 21' boat is foolish. The ocean is no joke!

While it's sad that it seems some men are lost, they should not have been out in that small a craft in rough waters. Even a 33' would have probably been much better.
21 ft is a pretty small boat.

I read that there is someone who usually goes with them and was just out with them last weekend.

He didnt go this weekend. I wonder if maybe that was their more knowledgable buddies who would have not taken the boat out.

It is still a tragedy regardless if they made a careless mistake or not.

Whatever the circumstances, its an unfortunate situation for these men. No one deserves such a fate, regardless of whether or not they were prepared to face it. Let's hope for a miracle and perhaps we can build on that. Isn't the news depressing enough these days? I'm sure that we can all use a piece of good news.

Experienced Boater...I think not. You don't go 35 miles off shore in a single engine 21 foot boat. Period.

Since you seem to common sense -- why would they have not righted the boat, they are huge guys, and, most certainly in good shape. One take a good long breath, take off the jacket, tie it on to you and on to someone else, and the other three right the boat. What do you think?
